Take a glorious month-by-month tour through the kindergarten year with master teacher Miss Cribbage, a guinea pig, as seen through the eyes of Emily the rabbit, one of eight animal students in the class. You'll get to know all of them: Diane, Emily, Louise, Martha, Odysseus, Otis, Roger, and Terrance, snug in their little their schoolhouse on Cranberry Island in Maine. As the months go by, they count, collect weeds and seeds, make maps, sing, and widen their horizons across the activity-filled curriculum. Note the natural focus on all the vital school and life skills, including science, reading, math, music, art, dance, weather, time, football, holidays, punctuation, measurement, money, poetry, and loving your library, of course.
